Have you checked and made sure all the proper cords are plugged in to the proper places? Also, have you tried just pushing all the cords further in, because the problem might just be that the cords aren't in correctly?.
Unplug the phone from the 110-AC source for maybe 30 seconds, then plug-in to let it boot up again. FYI, your land line becomes useless with cordless phones when the 110-AC power goes out. Advice you keep an old-school corded phone handy nearby to plug into the RJ-11 phone jack as a backup when household power goes out. The RJ-11 wiring includes power, which provides voltage power to old-school corded telephones. You can procure old-school corded phones really cheap from your neighborhood thrift stores.
Suggest you visit their support website or find their 800 number. Or try disconnecting from the line & removing all batteries for a minute, then reinstalling the batteries and reconnecting to the line.

is the main base plugged into the phone outlet? make sure it is and i would recommend putting a filter on the end of the cord. (dsl filter) then plug filter into wall. hopes this solves it! (note you might need to replace your phone cord).
try a corded phone and unplug your cordless. see if that helps. If not go outside to your power meter and near it you should see a box labeled telephone. open it and you "should" see a spot to plug in a corded phone. you first have to unplug the little cord thats already in it then plug in you phone. If no static, then prob is in your house wiring or in a defective old jack or possibly another device plugged into your phone line (computer, answering machine, caller ID box, etc. ) .
If you do have static while outside & plugged into the "test jack" , then prob is in the phone companies regulated facilities and they will come out and fix no charge to you.
You should have two jacks on your answering machine. One should be marked "Line". Plug the telephone cord from your wall into this one. The other jack should be marked "Phone". You will need another telephone cord to plug into this and then connect the other end to the phone.
